1-2 teaspoons poppy seeds

For the dressing

Preparation

  • Cook the beans in boiling water for 6-8 minutes (don’t overcook them).
  • Drain, rinse under running water, pat dry if necessary with some kitchen paper, transfer into a salad bowl and let cool (first at room temperature, then in the fridge).
  • To make the dressing, mince the garlic and the ginger. Wash and finely chop the parsley.
  • Transfer garlic, ginger and parsley into a bowl, add the lime juice, olive oil and salt and mix well. Keep in the fridge until ready to use.
  • Pour the dressing over the beans, add the poppy seeds, and mix it all together .
  • Check whether the dressing needs some extra olive oil.
  • Divide between serving plates and enjoy. This makes a great, light and flavourful side dish.
